Notes from the attic: Air + la Lune

A new version of Georges Méliès’s 1902 sci-fi classic Le Voyage dans la lune (A Trip to the Moon) is out, as of last week. It’s a full restoration (or as close as you’ll ever get) of the hand-colored print found in 1993, with soundtrack by the French duo Air. We just watched it in movie club. Sixteen minutes of fun.

Early rockets were shot out of a cannon, fyi. Ha.

Watch a clip of it here.

It'll look familiar to you if you've ever seen the Smashing Pumpkins video "Tonight, Tonight."
